LUX<bdi>*</bdi> Grand Gaube joins forces with local schools to champion sustainable living and protect nature

LUX* Grand Gaube, a retro-chic tropical resort nestled on the northern coast of Mauritius, is proud to announce its dynamic collaboration with the local schools, as part of its commitment to an eco-friendly, sustainable lifestyle and the protection of nature. Through its newly launched Kids Go Green programme, the resort is dedicated to playing an active role in fostering a sustainable future for Mauritius.

Mr. Stephan Anseline, General Manager of LUX* Grand Gaube, emphasises the imperative role of collective action in safeguarding the environment, “The protection of our planet extends far beyond the boundaries of our hotel. We are committed to engaging and inspiring neighbouring communities, equipping them with the knowledge and tools necessary to make a positive impact. By instilling environmental consciousness and responsibility in the younger generation, we lay the groundwork for a sustainable future that benefits us all."

The Kids Go Green initiative focuses on educating children about the importance of healthy eating. In a world where junk food and malnutrition have reached alarming levels, the chefs at LUX* Grand Gaube are eager to not only educate children about the merits of a nutritious diet through home-made and plant-based meals. They take a step further by explaining the importance of using seasonal, locally-sourced products instead of imported alternatives.

Furthermore, the programme imparts invaluable insights on repurposing food scraps and transforming leftovers into delectable recipes, thereby minimising food waste and encouraging sustainable consumption practices.


As part of this bi-monthly educational endeavour, the Kids Go Green programme provides a group of students the opportunity to visit the resort, embarking on an immersive journey into the skills of beekeeping. Guided by experts, these young enthusiasts gain a deeper understanding of the invaluable role of honeybees in our fragile ecosystem. This enriching experience enables them to witness the process of honey production and indulge in a honey-tasting session.

This comprehensive programme goes beyond theoretical education, empowering the students with practical skills rooted in the art of nurturing and cultivating the earth. Under the guidance of LUX* Grand Gaube’s gardeners, the students learn essential techniques in soil care, seed sowing, and plant cultivation. In addition, they can bring home their planted saplings to observe the growth of their own green endeavours, connecting to nature’s wonders.

Driven by its commitment to conserving the environment, LUX* Grand Gaube has integrated recycling and upcycling into the Kids Go Green programme, providing a platform for students to explore their creativity and embrace their eco-consciousness at the Junk Art Gallery. Here, they are inspired to unleash their creativity as they breathe new life into discarded materials such as cans, glass, plastic, and flip-flops, engaging in meaningful and enjoyable activities that encourage sustainable practices by repurposing resources that might have gone to waste.

LUX* Grand Gaube’s collaborative efforts with local schools underscore its commitment to sustainable living and environmental stewardship. By equipping the younger generation with knowledge, practical skills, and a sense of responsibility, the resort paves the way for a brighter and greener future. It forges the path towards a sustainable Mauritius and creates positive change and impact.
